Charlie Patel, owner of Stones River Total Beverage, has supported Wine Around the Square for the last eight years. He was recently asked why he is so generous to the community and why he continues to give back.
Why do you support so many organizations in our community?
“We have been in the community for over 20 years and we acknowledge that we would not be here without the support of our loyal customers and the community. It is highly important to show the community our gratification and we believe the best way to do that is by being as involved and giving back in each and every opportunity we possibly can.”
Why is Wine Around the Square important to you?
“Wine Around the Square is an event that we have been participating in now for a number of years. Year after year we have a great time and seem to get raving reviews from everyone in attendance. Aside from that, the cause supported is one that is very near and dear to our hearts. One of our partners at Stones River Total Beverages has lost a parent to breast cancer and we have another partner with a survivor in the family. This is a disease that affects many across the nation and we like to show our support in beating it.”
What wine are you most excited to feature this year at Wine Around the Square?
“As always we are excited to bring some of our favorite wines to the event to share with everyone. That being said, we are especially excited about our rosé garden. This is going to be a section in which attendees will be given the chance to taste a variety of some of our favorite rosés, and what better way to support the cause than with some pink wines!”
